eek....there's an errant full stop at the end of the last line - try without the full stop.  Make sure you press enter after typing each line of code.
You might also want to try typing the codes separately - ie. open console, type first code, close console, type second code, etc.

Hah!  I think my wife would have something to say about that!

AddItem "bm_ebonyarrow_s" 10

...will add 10 extra ebony arrows of slaying.

1) This is cheating - there are only meant to be 5 of them in the whole game!
2) If you fire one against an enemy that has reflect, you will die immediately.
3) Don't use them at the end of the main quest - there's a bug and you will break the game ending.

It may not happen with anything else, as nothing else may push your system as hard as Morrowind does.

Try: Right-click My Computer, select Properties, select Hardware, select Device Manager.  Scroll down to
Universal Serial Bus Controllers, open the plus sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers, scroll down the list to USB Root Hub and highlight.  Right-click that entry and choose Properties.  A window will open with four tabs.  Choose Power Management.  The page should say USB Root Hub and below that, should be a box ticked for "Allow the computer to turn off the device to save power"  Untick that box and close.  Close all dialog boxes, including Device Manager.


Finally managed to follow the instructions... Well it seemed to work for a time...

Mind you I can't get any add item cheat code to work as the " key in the console converts to a @ symbol...

Ok, so it's set up for the US keyboard in that case, where the " and @ keys are swapped.

Type the @ key and it should appear on screen as ".

Well that is odd...
I tried swapping round those keys BEFOR and it didn't work.... I can only assume this was fixed in the update.

HOWEVER although the code was accepted... (the line turned violet & there were no error message)

the items did not appear in my inventory. sigh

You did remember to add player-> to the beginning of the code to make sure it's added to you?

player->AddItem "bm_ebonyarrow_s" 10

Oh Grud!

dispite following jackstarrs advice re my recurring mouse problems I have now totally lost all mouse function not just in the game but for every thing.
Can anybody advise me on how to uninstall the mouse software as this apparently my only hope....

1) If your mouse came with any 3rd party software, then uninstall this first via "Add/Remove Programs" from "Start" > "Control Panel".  If unsure, check the brand of your mouse (for example logitech or microsoft) and see if there is any installed software that looks as though it's to do with your mouse.  If your mouse is unbranded, there probably isn't any 3rd party software installed.

2) Go to "Start" > "Control Panel" > "Performance and Maintenance" > "System," then open the "Hardware" tab and click on "Device Manager." Expand the list of devices under "Mice and other pointing devices," then double-click on your mouse.

3) Click to open the "Driver" tab, then click on the "Uninstall" button at the bottom of the dialogue box. You will now be prompted to confirm the operation. Click "OK" to continue. The uninstallation process will now commence.  Unplug your mouse.

4) Reboot your pc.  When it restarts, plug in your mouse, and Windows should automatically check for the correct driver.
